First microchipped Hedgehogs in Guernsey - Please help monitor Hedgehogs in Guernsey

Submitted by GSPCA on 12:22, 27th Jun, 2013 | 0

Yesterday the GSPCA microchipped the first Hedgehogs in Guernsey.

Scatters then Bonnie were the first two Hedgehogs to be chipped at the Shelter and the first to be know to be chipped in the Channel Islands.

The GSPCA have been using paint and plastic tags to help with monitoring the hogs released from the Shelter but these as with many methods fall and run off.

The GSPCA deal with hundreds of Hedgehogs every year and with declining numbers in the UK the Animal Shelter want to know if a Hedgehog returns to the Shelter that we can accurately tell this is the case.

The GSPCA would like to thank Rebecca Johns who popped into the Shelter yesterday with a fantastic donation of £157 which she has raised through a sponsored silence.

Rebecca downloaded a sponsor form from the GSPCA website and printed it off with help from her boyfriend and managed not to say a word during the event on the 9th June.

When Rebecca popped in yesterday GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne said a huge thanks and Rebecca also got to meet and hold for the first time a baby ferret which was found as a stray and is now called Finley.

Warning from the GSPCA – Animals and Glass

Submitted by GSPCA on 15:53, 25th Jun, 2013 | 0

The GSPCA is asking to please be mindful of broken glass after a number of cats have been reported to be injured.

Although it is not clear of the exact location of where the incidents occurred, the GSPCA are asking land owners to please ensure that broken glass is disposed safely to help wildlife and other animals.

Vets often see animals injured by glass and during the Spring and Summer months more animals are out and about and therefore at risk.

The two most recent cats reported both needed stitches but thankfully are now back to health.
